San Diego County's Department of Animal Services announced a 5.5 foot Colombian rainbow boa emerged from an office building's toilet.
Apparently an office worker thought the water in the toilet looked a little too high, and when they plunged it, a snake head poked out.

See? Urban legends and nightmares do come true, given time.
